Review

Investigations into trainer Alberto Salazar have caused the phrases “Mo Farah” and “performance-enhancing drugs” to appear in proximity in the news, despite no accusations being aimed at the double Olympic champ himself. So it’s no surprise that Farah is forthright in this interview, underlining that he has always been clean.

The distance runner also discusses matters off the track, including the anguish he felt when circumstance separated him from his twin brother Hassan at the age of eight. More happily, Farah remembers how he proposed to his wife Tania during an episode of EastEnders, and how the birth of their twin daughters coincided with his greatest professional triumph at London 2012.

Summary

Double Olympic gold medal-winning athlete Mo Farah - recently knighted in the new year honours - opens up to the presenter about the pain he felt at being separated from his twin brother, Hassan, who stayed in Somalia when Mo emigrated to Britain as a child. He also reveals about how during the London Olympics his wife Tania planned to keep the birth of their twin daughters a secret - not just from the public, but from Mo himself.
